It will have Sakyamuni Buddha as the central statue with other important statues of Guru Padmasambhava, Pema Lingpa and Zhabdrung.

The third phase includes the construction of hostels for the monks and practitioners (advanced and lay), the Guest House, the construction of a huge Avalokitesvara prayer wheel (Mani Dungkhor), and the complete site development throughout the area.

Other plans like the construction of stupas within and surrounding the compound will be taken up in the immediate future. Caves nearby the monastery, in the serene forests, will be developed for the practitioners to practice meditation.
